I have been painting with acrylics for a number of years. Recently, I started painting with Atelier Interactive. It's a great acrylic on its own, but after it gets dried and up to its cured, you can bring the paint back to its wet state to continue blending or revealing. Has anyone else experienced this acrylic? I would love to hear comments on the paint and the paintings I posted with this. :)

no - I've used ordinary acrylics and recently been using alkyd oils. I'd guess the interactive paints are a bit like them - alkyds are quicker drying oils and atelier seem to be slower drying acrylics.

Hi, I've been using 'normal' acrylics for years but recently tried some of these atelier interactives after purchasing them at the SAA london art exhibition. They are really quite good, easy to use and the water spray method to keep them going is fabulous. If it does dry completely, the unlocking formula is good but I found you can put a small amount of it in your water spray bottle and it keeps it going indefinitely....how good is that? They also lend well to the watercolour method as they can be lifted slightly even when dry.

They sound great!
I had seen them advertised a while back but didn't really understand what they did.

I'll have to keep a look out for them, maybe I can put them on my Christmas list.
Are they more expensive than Artists Acrylic?
